Last month I went to Wasaga Beach for the first time with some friends. On the way back to the 400 a yell rose from the front seat, "There it is! I told you I saw a crazy tree covered in shoes!"
Sure enough on the side of Crossland Road just outside Wasaga there is an enormous tree covered in shoes. Sneakers, work boots, skate shoes and even tinfoil kicks blanket the birch (I think...) tree.
Footwear covers the trunk and most branches as well as some adjoining small trees. A bed of shoes surround the base of the tree as if some odd orthopaedic version of fall is always occurring. But why?
A search for Wasaga shoe tree only uncovers one YouTube video that asks the same questions.
Why? The answer seems to be why not?
